A letter to Caleb

Dear Caleb, 
Yesterday we celebrated 1 month of your life, 1 month of many many many months :-) Your dad and I are very grateful that God has chosen us to be your parents. Your presence has provided us with many many smiles since we knew you were coming and in the past month, those smiles has multiplied with having you actually here. 

It is hard for us as your parents to believe the first month is already here, it has been one of the fastest months of our lives. You are growing up too fast in your mom's opinion, time, be at a standstill please! 
It is hard to put into words the last month however, I admit I am struggling to put this letter together. 

There is so much your parents feel for you, so much love of course. I love having you more awake than the first week of your life. I love looking into your big blue eyes, only God knows right now if they will stay blue or change color. 

There have been times during the past month I am so overwhelmed with how much I love you, how lucky I feel to be your parent and asking God what did I do right for your father and I to raise you.

There have been 3am feeding sessions where I just prayed over you and oh there is so much to pray for too. For now, our prayer is that you will be healthy and to grow big and strong and that you will love God and walk with Him every.single.day. 

Let's recap the last month with a few photos :-)




For the next year, this elephant (handmade by the way!) will serve as a growth comparison

Love, your mom and dad

So sweet Meg! Doesn't seem like it's been that long. I hear ya, it really is true...they grow up way too fast.

So sweet, he's grown so much in a month. It's like part of you wants them to stay little, while the other part can't wait to have full conversations and share things you love with them! Looks like you're really enjoying him to the fullest!

I seriously cannot believe it has been a month! You two seem like amazing parents.

p.s. I know you follow me on Bloglovin', so I just wanted to update you that my url changed (and like a dummy), I forgot to post it BEFORE I moved my blog to a new URL- so when I sent out the update no one already following me could see it... ugh.

So FYI, I'm now permanently at www.haveashley.com, and I have a link posted in the most recent post if you'd like to refollow through Bloglovin'. New layout and content is pending, but I wanted to be sure my friends actually see it (so embarrassing!)

Thanks for your support and understanding with the hiccups in the change!
